I'm going there with some friends tonight. Aside from the crab dish which is soooooo amazing, I'm looking for ideas for a second and third. Anyone been there that has a recomendation?

One of the guys doesn't eat pork or green leafy things that's been stir fried. Make it hard to order, eh?

    Went to this place for a big dinner a couple months back. It's located in First Markham Place, a few doors east of Ding Tai Fung. I'd say it's definitely one of the better places around if you order their more deluxe dishes (the owners previously ran the ex-Maple Pepper Garden over at East Beaver Creek & 7). Standouts were a beautiful five-pound lobster, a fantastic cubed beef tenderloin w/mushrooms plate (both dishes generously bathed with diced sauteed garlic), the aforementioned crab, and eel done two ways. There was also a pretty decent potato and beef curry. A very good addition to the mall. What did you guys end up ordering?

      I was irked by this place when they automatically charged me $5 for a small dish of salty fish and veggies snacks (smaller than the size of my palm). I assumed it was free since they just put it on my table when I arrived.
